Cronulla's Bottlo'Briens is a local hero for all things booze. Starting with craft beer, the bottle shop always has the latest and greatest — at the moment, that includes The Grifter's entire range, plus Akasha's Wooden Leg triple IPA and Hope Estate's Sunny Boy sour and Imperial pineapple sour. It also has Stone & Wood's new Sunly Seltzer brand in flavours like Davidson plum and berry.
Apart from the massive craft beer range, the shop also focuses on emerging wine producers and artisanal spirits, along with a new range dedicated to low-ABV and non-alcoholic wines. The latest addition to these is Melbourne-based label Non, which produces zero-alcohol wine alternatives in innovative flavour combos like toasted cinnamon and yuzu or lemon marmalade and hibiscus. The latter was made in collaboration with popular Melbourne cafe Assembly. Bottlo'Briens is now stocking cheese and charcuterie in store, too, and has just launched online delivery Australia wide. Delivery is free for surrounding suburbs, and next day delivery is available if you place your order before 11am.
